I am continually drawn to textiles as a medium of creativity and expression, either fashioning them myself or enjoying other’s textile art. This weblog is to be a journal of my (and youngest daughter’s in earlier posts) experimentation and progress through the realm and breadth of textile art. The title, Carlseapatch, is an amalgamation of our four children’s names.

    Cheers, Jo-Anne,
    I enjoyed looking at your blog. You could, of course, have a blog on an iWeb website you constructed, and the club offers free web hosting.

    I write what amounts to two blogs these days. the first is time and tide, written for Talking Heads, our BH community paper. The other is for a French website I have been invited to join. You can see that one at:
    while my Bh one is regularly updated on my own website.

    You might be interested to drop in sometime to talk about iPhoto book publishing, which is discussed in my new ‘Sharing’ manual. Pat and I just printed a lovely book of images from our daughter’s holiday here in January. The opportunities are endless!

    Do you do Embroidered ATC’s?
    I would like to swap, if so.

    Thanks for visiting my blog – no I wasn’t standing on my head for the spider web pic! It was above my head and I had to hold the camera at a strange angle to focus the web and not get too much light into the lens. A bit of frost on it would have added some festive sparkle but you can’t have everything.

    PS – And I’ve had a quick look at your blog – lots of lovely stuff – very impressed with the shift dress with the fancy neckline – and love the silk paper. Will look at more later x

    Hi Jo-Anne. Your postcard arrived yesterday. I am delighted. Alsyn Midgelow-Marsden visited our Guild in Solihull some years ago. I was chairman (woman) so she came to tea with me. If I remember correctly she had studied marine biology at Bangor University. As I come from Aberystwyth, another university town in Wales, we had more than textiles in common. I love the colours in the strata, the richness and textures. Thank you for parting with it. Now I am reading your blogs. You are productive and enthusiastic. I too enjoy stitching. Six of us have recently exhibited at our local gallery. It’s good to have a target. Many thanks for the contact. No sign of humpback whales here in the Midlands. Glad he/she was rescued.
